Getting Around Nashville

Before you set off on any of your planned adventures, you should first see what your transportation options are. Sure, you can always go classic and hire a limo, but there are so many other—dare we say better—ways you can explore the town.

Roundtrip Honky Tonk Party Shuttle to Arrington Vineyards

Here, you and the boys can visit the Arrington Vineyards and enjoy spending time outdoors, in fresh air, while sipping on some delicious wine. If you book this party shuttle operated by Honky Tonk Party Express in Nashville, TN, you can take your entire crew (of up to 25 guests) on a 3-hour excursion that’s full of stunning, Instagram-worthy sceneries. The best part is you won’t need to worry about having a designated driver, as this service includes a trip to Arrington Vineyards, driver wait time, and the trip back.

What we especially love: No matter how fun the bachelor party is, safety always needs to come first, and that’s exactly what the service offers. Aside from safety, this party shuttle offers traveling in style with executive seating and USB chargers on board.

Important: Keep in mind that this is just a shuttle ride that does not include the vineyard ticket, so make sure you book that prior to booking the shuttle.

Music City Crawler: BYOB Party Bike Bar Crawl

If you’re looking for a more active experience, you can always go for a music BYOB party bar crawl in Nashville, TN, and let the good times roll! Pedal through Nashville's buzzing bar scene with your main man and a crew of up to 15 legends. It's BYOB, so bring the brews that'll make this ride rock. Cruise to the rhythm of the groom's favorite jams, hitting legendary spots like Tootsies, Wild Horse Saloon, BB Kings, Honky Tonk Central, and Legends. The crawl lasts a solid 1 hour and 30 minutes, giving you plenty of time to soak up the vibrant Nashville vibes as well as all the booze you brought along.

What we especially love: Since you’ll be in charge of your own tempo, this is the perfect way to explore the Music City and see everything that it has to offer. Plus, being in charge of your playlist is always a bonus, especially when it comes to bachelor parties.

Important: Be sure to book your tour early, as this is a very popular way of getting around Nashville, so you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity. 

What if We Get Hungry?

All the partying, drinking, and running around will definitely make you famished at some point, so it’s good to know where you can grab a delicious bite. Depending on your taste and preferences, you can try some of the following experiences. 

Book a Private Chef Custom Gourmet Dining Service at Your Location

By hiring a private chef in Nashville, TN, you’ll be able to bring some of the best restaurant experiences right to your doorstep and enjoy epic foods at your epic bachelor party! 

What we especially love: Since the groom-to-be is the VIP of the bachelor party, the private chef will do their best to create a masterpiece customized to the groom’s tastes and wishes. 

Important: The chef will bring plates and cooking essentials, but you’ll need to contact the service provider if you need them to provide eating utensils as well.

From hoppy brews to finger-licking goodness and smooth spirits, this dining party in Nashville, TN, will have your taste buds begging for more.

Important: You can choose from lunch (11:45 AM) and dinner (5:15 PM) options, so pick the one that suits you best.

What if We Get Thirsty?

Good drinks should accompany good food. And while drinking itself is the most common bachelor party activity, you can add a little twist to it and turn it into an unforgettable experience.

What Else Should We Check Out in Nashville? 

Dining at the best bars and restaurants is all fine and dandy, but for some, that’s simply not enough to make for an awesome bachelor party. So, no matter if you’re planning a joint bachelor and bachelorette party or you’re going solo with your bros, there are plenty of fun activities you can try out. 

Book an Epic BYOB Flyboarding Adventure at Beautiful Percy Priest Lake

Suppose you’re itching to ditch the city and dive into a wild water adventure at Percy Priest Lake's private dock. In that case, we recommend checking out the epic BYOB flyboarding adventure in Nashville, TN. The dock is only 15 minutes away from Downtown Nashville, so getting there is rather simple.

What we especially like: Although this adventure may seem a bit intense, especially if you consider there’s drinking involved as well, a team of CPR/first aid certified trainers is always present to ensure everyone’s safety. 

Important: Each person gets to spend about 30 minutes on the flyboard, so make sure you organize your time well. 

Go on a Pontoon Private BYOB Party With a Roundtrip Shuttle to Lake, Licensed Captain and Party Pad

If you love a good adventure but don’t really feel like soaring through the skies on a hydroflight board, then booking a private pontoon BYOB party shuttle in Nashville, TN, may be more up your alley. Grab your boys for an amazing three-hour adventure that'll make you feel like kings of Nashville. There’s room for up to 10 of your crew, so grab your favorite drinks and get ready for some epic water fun. We've got floating party pads, intense beer-pong battles, and everything you need to make this bachelor party a legendary experience. 

What we especially like: There’s a licensed Captain operating the roundtrip shuttle from Nashville, so you can just focus on soaking up the sun, enjoying your drinks, and creating unforgettable memories.

Important: This experience also includes inner tubes, floating beer pong, kneeboarding, standard beer pong, coolers, ice, and plenty of cups, but you must bring your ID to be able to board, as you must be at least 21 to consume alcohol so you won’t be able to board without it.

Check Out the Bad-Ass Stress-Releasing Axe Throwing Party in Nashville

With private rooms that have AV capabilities, you can cater to your bachelor party crew with your favorite videos and create an amazing experience with privacy.

Important: Make sure you wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes to avoid any mishaps. 

When Should We Visit Nashville for a Bachelor Party?

No matter what time of year you decide to organize a Nashville bachelor party, you’ll have plenty of things to do and see. However, keep in mind that Nashville summers can get very hot and humid, so if you decide to visit during this time of year, plan your bachelor party adventures around fun waterside activities.

On the other hand, since Nashville is so famous for its vibrant events and live music scene, you can also align your bachelor party trip with some of the festivals, like the CMA Music Festival, the Nashville Film Festival, and the Music City Bowl.

Additionally, keep in mind that Nashville can get quite crowded during spring break and summer vacation season, so don’t visit it during this period if you wish to avoid heavy crowds.
